“People see what they want to see, and that is generally what’s most convenient for them”

When Miranda Harris’s right to marry for LOVE is taken away from her by her brother’s debt and threats of blackmail, she is left scrambling to take back her future. And that means consorting with the worst sort of people - gamblers.


In walks Aden MacTaggert with his gambler’s hands, Scottish brogue, kilt, broad chest, strong chin, gray-green eyes, black hair, high

This second in the series was just as good as the first. Slow burn romance between Miranda and Aden. I can only imagine the Highlander brothers traipsing through England in kilts and ignoring societies rules. Definitely some funny parts. Aden is loyal, clever and full of honor. Miranda is sharp-tongued, equally clever and very strong. The MacTaggert brothers have a strong unbreakable bond and they have such a soft spot for their sister. I enjoyed how Aden and Miranda partnered up and schemed ...more

In the first book in the series, It's Getting Scot in Here, we were introduced to the wild, brawny, devilishly handsome MacTaggert brothers. The brothers, Coll, Aden, and Niall, have lived the last seventeen years without their mother - Aden was only ten when she left and Niall was seven. She got tired of the Highland's lack of social life and left with their year-old sister, Eloise. They haven’t heard a word from her

My second ready by Suzanne Enoch and my second win! I'm beginning to think she is popular for a reason...

I really enjoyed Scot Under the Covers, the second in the Wild Wicked Highlanders series, and not just because the titles of these stories make me grin from ear to ear, but they are just dynamic, romantic, fun stories to read.

I loved the smart, capable female MC. She really knew how to think on her feet, and I instantly connected with her. She was savvy and resourceful, and I could

I’ll be honest, I totally didn’t knew that Suzanne Enoch has a new series out, so when I stumbled across this book, I knew that I had to try it. I’m usually a bigger fan of her Victorian Historical Romances, but who can say no to a hot highlander?

Enoch pays a lot of attention to the details, which brings a really rich experience for the reader. However, I think that if you aren’t familiar with the terminology that Highlander Romances have, then you may find some bits confusing. She doesn’t

Scot Under The Covers is the second book in the "Wild Wicked Highlanders" series and this was such a delight. Suzanne Enoch is an auto-read author for me, even though not all of her books work for me 100% of the time, this book .....pure delights on every page. I had such a fun time with this book and this story really worked for me. There is nothing I love more than a mix of highlander and English pairings and Enoch is one of the queens in

This is the second book of Enoch's newest series. I haven't read the first, and this was fine as a standalone. I can tell you will have a better feel for all the characters be reading in order, though. The siblings were in this book, and I'm assuming at least Aden was in the prior book. The first book of the series is It's Getting Scot in Here). This book provided a bit more insight into how Coll's personality was and I'm assuming the next book will be about him (or at least that he will have a ...more

Scot Under the Covers (Wild Wicked Highlanders #2) by Suzanne Enoch ia a very delightful story. This is the second in the series involving Aden MacTaggert who enjoys himself with women and wagering at the gaming tables. You have got to love these four Scottish brothers who live under there, in some ways, their mother’s technical rule…either marry before your younger sister or never get the money to keep their impoverished holdings in Scotland afloat.

It is not until Aden meets his match, an

DNF@28% I tried so hard to read this book but I just couldn't get through it. I found Aden ok but honestly he was nothing special, now for Miranda she is so judgmental at this point I just don't like her. Also, where is the outrage that her brother has basically gambled so much money away that he his unable to pay it back so she is the payment, I don't get it. Another issue, after reading some reviews Aden basically just has a talking to her brother and that's it. Oh and did I mention said ...more

Scot Under the Covers is a true delight! It’s fast-paced and fun with characters who are easy to adore and a romance that will leave you smiling.

Aden is known as the “elusive MacTaggert brother.” He’s got a quick mind and skilled fingers that serve him well both in the cardroom and the bedroom, and he’s not unwilling to let the English’s dim views of Scotsmen work to his advantage. His mother’s decree that he marry an Englishwoman suddenly becomes a very appealing

He ends up falling in love with Miranda Harris who is engaged to Aden’s sister. Miranda is in a terrible situation due to her brother Matthew’s gambling away a huge amount of money he doesn’t have to a ...more

I haven't read a Suzanne Enoch story in a long time. The good news is that her writing is still top-notch! Scot under the Covers was charming, heart-warming and just plain fun. Take one clever Highlander and mix him with a conventional Sassenach with a secret desire to rebel and you have a terrific mix. Both families added a lot to the mix, plus one very slimy villain. This book was everything I love about historical romance. A must-read.

ARC provided through Netgalley.

After reading and enjoying the first book in this series, there was no way I was missing this one.

I loved Miranda and Aden. She’s sharp-tongued and loyal. He’s elusive and charming when he needs to be. Together they’re unlikely partners and it’s so much fun reading them slowly move from acquaintances to something like friends to love. Of course it’s delightful to see Aden’s brothers and Francesca.

Plot wise, it was good. There aren’t as many moving pieces as I expected, but it’s quite layered.

Aden MacTaggert is the middle MacTaggert son forced to travel to England to find an English bride. He immediately finds the bride he wants in Miranda Harris. Miranda, however, is embroiled in a plot not of her own making. She agrees to assist Aden fit in better with polite society if he helps her out of her dilemma.

I was initially going to rate this title lower but changed my mind because I enjoyed so many things about it and only really had one major problem.

I liked both Aden and Miranda.

Aden McTaggert is in England with his brothers to save their properties and people in Scotland. Why? Because there mother decreed they had to marry English women before the sister their mother returned to England with becomes a wife. They need the money so...they are in England.

This is the second book in this series. It can be read as a stand alone novel. Who doesn't love a good Scottish man. I know the accent does it for me.

Every once in a while, I will grab a historical romance book to read. The one thing you can usually guarantee with these types of books that feature Scottish or Highlanders are the "rakishness" that the men embody. This is not a bad thing. It makes them a bit "cheeky". Yet, you need a woman who can hold her own with a man like this. In this case

In keeping with my 2020 resolution to discover more historical romances I requested this new-to-me author because this cover was hot!

An enemies to lovers romance between a gambling Highlander hell-bent on avoiding marriage to a wilting English miss, and a woman who isn't at all intimidated by his roguish demeanor. It took me a little while to get into this one, but once the plot got rolling (Miranda's hand in marriage has been traded to forgive a gambling debt) I was invested! Miranda is forced

I really liked it. It was a lovely, quick read. I can always count on Ms. Enoch to deliver a good, sweet historical romance. I could not put this down (even if it doesn't seem so based on how long I was reading it), but that's not to say there aren't some elements of the story that could have been better.
I had some difficulty getting into it the first 3 chapters or so but later the story picked up and I got engrossed. It was little slow to get started and much too quick to wrap up. It kept me

When her brother finds himself up to his neck in crippling debt from gambling, Miss Miranda Harris finds herself being forced into marriage with the wily retired military Captain who has ruined her brother. As loathsome as she finds him, Miranda knows she must seek help from Aden McTaggert, the wild Highlander who is the brother of her future sister-in-law.

Aden knows nothing about English high society but he's familiar with women and gaming. In order to keep his inheritance and the money that

Gotta love those wild wicked Highlanders:) I thoroughly enjoyed this story and loved everything about it! This is Aden and Miranda's story and ooooh, what a story it is!!

Aden is my type of hero....not only is he a tall and gorgeous Highlander, he prefers to wear a kilt, has a wicked sense of humour and doesn't care what anyone thinks of him. He's also a gambler (an honest one!) and when he's asked to help solve a situation that involves a dastardly villain who ruins lives of other gamblers, he

A braw Scot wearing a kilt, barefoot, with a soft spot for a hungry dog and a horse named Loki? Just call me happy! I immediately fell in love with Aden! He was fun and had a great sense of humor but also a soft side, especially for his family.
He and his two brothers had come to London at the bequest of their mother, who had left them years ago in Scotland, but took their sister her. She held the purse strings and had finagled that the boys were to marry English ladies in order to keep the funds

5 Word Review: Family, reputation, society, love, control.

This book was just what I needed, and I don't think I could have enjoyed it more.

Scot Under the Covers is an excellent Regency Romance. It has scandals and intrigue and secrets and a slow burn hate-to-love romance. It ticked all of the boxes for me and by the end gave me the warm fuzzies.

I loved the characters in the story. Miranda was headstrong and knew her mind, but she was also a bit of a paragon of society. She was very proper and

Scot Under the Covers turned out to be a really fun read! It started with the ridiculous boot throwing battle between the older MacTaggert brothers, a mention of Rory, the oddly dressed, stuffed stag, and Brogan, Aden’s unexpected rescue dog. The plot thickened with the lost wager from a brainless twit. But that brought out the battle of wits between Aden and Miranda, which kept me entertained from the get-go. Aden’s dry sense of humor also had me in stitches more times than I care

Miranda’s brother lost high wagers and is blackmailed into marrying his sister off to the winner.
She fights her destiny with the unlikely alliance with highlander Aden, a gamer she despises.

I had a major problem with the setup (the brother was despicable, and yet he came out one of the good guys), but it speaks for the author’s writing that the story was, nonetheless, enjoyable.

The “enemy-to-lover” banter is quite funny and the story moved along with a nice pace, making this a page turner for

I love your cleverness, and your heart, and the way you have Smythe so twisted about that he couldn’t figure out this morning how to tell you that not only is Brògan a girl, but she had pups on his bed last night.” A laugh burst unbidden from his chest.
